Both nice cars, love the M3, I had the E90 in white looked good too.
Enjoy both, who will drive the F31?, you or the wife.

Thanks.

We both will I think - I find myself trying not to drive the M3... maybe I need to sort myself out!

I had a E90 white w/black for a while from the dealer whilst my M3 was being sorted. It was great with the extra doors. I heard they are better on a track too than the coupe.

Note the M3 is mineral white, F31 is Alpine white... I wanted mineral on the F31 but you can't have it with M Sport

Identically looking to the courtesy one I had. Very nice, is that mineral white? It's so hard to tell but mineral comes alive at night / under the right lighting.

My wife hates the M3, she thinks it's too noisy even more so with the performance exhaust.

How come you got rid? Fuel?

X6 is masssivvvee!

I am in love with these M Performance parts... notice it's the F31 getting all the attention, maybe the M3 would have had if they didn't ruin it with those silly tricolour stripes...

Question

I'm liking the rear spoiler on the F31. First time I have seen it. Is this going to be available?

Mineral white (on your M3) is a great colour, it's a shame BMW really limited the colour choices on the different lines for the F30!

Personally I'm not a fan of the spoiler on the F30; it looks great on an E90/E92/E82 as they all have a flat boot; but with the F30 having a slight lip/curve on the boot anyway, I personally feel it conflicts with it somewhat, or at best, is unneeded. Just my opinion! I have the CF spoiler on my E82 at present, but have decided not to get a spoiler for the F30, hope I don't change my mind when I get it...

Cheers guys

I'm finding it nice... economy isn't too great, should have probably stuck with the 320d I originally ordered seeing as this is a family car and I have the M3 for fun.

I'm averaging 37.5mpg (calculated), and I'm not driving it hard, always in Eco mode. The engine is fast... similar to the 335d I had once. Lots of torque too.

Above I say stuck with 320d, as that is what I originally ordered... so it sounds like we did the inverse! A few weeks in, and after adding and adding options - I decided the 330d would be more fitting. The price gap came right down due to the extras you get included with the 330d vs the 320d.

Enjoy yours when it comes!

If I wasn't in a rush (wife had twins), I would have definitely tried to have it in BMW individual mineral white, w/red (M sport can't have mineral white). I've had alpine before and it always looked yellow next to the ice white fords we have at my office. Thankfully the F3x alpine white seems to be fresher.

Cheers,

Mat

Cheers, love the wheels on the M3, just whether to have them coated black... I keep shifting.

Thanks My first BMW was titanium silver, and second silver grey, since then I've stuck with white. But I still like silver.
